Revocation Of State Lawyer's License Asked Rules Committee Takes Action Against Horace Whitsitt Paragould, Ark.-(/P)-Disbarment proceedings were Jiled yesterday (gainst a Paragould attorney, charged with, alleged professional i misconduct. The Arkansas Bar Rules Committee filed suit in Greene Circuit Court asking that Horace W. Whit- «itt's law license be revoked and that he be prohibited from further practice in Arkansas. The Rules Committee, an agency of the Arkansas Supreme Court, placed four charges of alleged unethical conduct against Whitsitt, an attorney here since 1933 and former city attorney. Whitsitt said he would file a general denial in his answer to the complaint. "I am not guilty and I welcome a trial as soon as possible," he said, adding that the action was the result of "some disgruntled clients." The committee declared that in one of its four cases against Whitsitt that the lawyer was guilty of "withholding the true facts from his clients, of extracting an excessive fee ... of exaggerated and fraudulent representations and of attempting to extort a further undeserved fee by means of false and slanderous statements defaming the administration of justice, and reflecting on the integrity of the circuit court and its officers.' In this case, the committee charged that Whitsitt obtained fees totaling S3.150 from the son of C. A. Jackson, 73, Greene County man whom he defended on a charge of raping a five-year-old girl. The committee said that the contract signed by Whitsilt, the Rev. Gayle Jackson of Sikeston, Mo., son of Jackson, and the defendant's son-in-law, the Rev. Glen Thompson of Paraeoulri showed only 31,000 as the full fee. The other cases cited, said the committee, showed "a pattern and course of conduct in the past . unprofessional dealing between lawyer and client." Charges against Whitsitt were heard by the committee in a spe^ clal meeting in Little Rock last February I. rtO«THWBT AUCANf AS flMIS Foyttttviilc, Ark«m*» TimJ.y, April t, l«tt THE ACHESONS GREET ROYAL COUPLE AT DINNER PARTY U. 5.

By ED VANDEVENTEH Rio de Janeiro, Brazil--Viewing nature's choice masterpiece of art. grandeur, beauty and sublimity, I could not keep tears out of m.v eyes. The scene was so impressive 1 realized that only God could have created it, and in a strange sort of way I felt t h a t I was rubbing elbows with the Creator. I stood on the lop of Sugar Loaf Mountain and looked across the valley at the statue of Christ, standing 90 feet high on the peak of Corcovado, with arms outstretched in perpetual benediction. Dn the way up in a car suspended by cables I had been reciting an inspiring poem in Spanish so some Portuguese acquaintances could compare it with their language--"He who has God lacks nothing." I looked down on the world- .jmed Guanabara Bay, the numerous white beaches, the mountains, the valleys, the Atlantic Ocean to the south and then to ,thc imposing statue known as Christo Redenlor. and then could sec no more until I removed glasses and v. from my eyes. My first view of this magic picture was from an airliner ns the pilot made a wide arc so the passengers could sec the ocean, bay, beaches, hills, mountains and cily. It came before UK so suddenly and I was so busy trying to take pictures the full effect of the scene was not felt, though it was startling enough. The Great Designer In the Sky must have been in the mood of a Michael Angclo when He made this picture. With lavish prodigality He dipped His magic brush in many colors to make this one of His most gorgeous offerings to mankind. Its artistry is unrivaled. Daaaling Scint The sides of hills and mountains are of a luscious green. Vast expanses of gray rock form a striking contrast. White sand on the :ong string of beaches, the cluster of islands, palms w a v i n g In the breeze, the Atlantic Ocean and ihe aquamarine bay combine In dazzle Ihe eyes of man with their Inimitable ensemble. As a setting by a master craftsman gives added brilliance to a rare diamond, so does the f r a m e of unparalleled charm created here add luster to the exquisite canvas called filo. Facing the sea is a promenade five miles long. Magnificent buildings, monument built by great sculptors, lovel parks, fountains and flowers com bine to make this a scintlllatin I jewel worthy of Its God-made set ting. For two days I was a guest a the Copacabnna Palace Hotel sit uated on Atlantica Beach. From early morning until dark, thousand of persons may he seen lying on the sand or playing In the surf And the hotel has a pool right b the bar 100 feet long, with , smaller pool for children. Those who like plenty of alcohol lol around this snooty enclosure. From the 20th floor of the Ser- rador Hotel, nearer the business center, I see below to the left a park studded w i t h bright green trees. About half a mile away is a row of hills dotted wllh pretty homes, the foundations of some being higher than the tops of tall buildings in the downtown section. Reminds me of Eureka Springs. Beyond, the mountains rise in a most Irregular line. To the right is the great statue, b r i l l i a n t l y lighted at night. The , Faltering hope of those depressed I by the savagery of warmongers is ' revived as they gaze in silent prayer at that impressive symbol of peace on earth, good will to men. Sitting fascinated by this eight- foot-wide window, I see thousands of lights along the boulevard, hillside homes lighted, countless automobiles, taxis, buses and streetcars. Lots of transportation is required to kenp a city of more than 3.000,000 in motion. And always my eyes go back .to the lighted statue of Christ. No time for night clubs or movies with a ringside scat to view this alluring scene. I ONt-MAN CftlME FIGHTER Robm H.
